Uvm was chartered in 1791 (the same year that Vermont became the 14th state in the union). It was the first college or university in the country to declare in its charter that the "rules, regulations, and by-laws shall not tend
to give preference to any religious sect or denomination whatsoever" -- a clear assertion of UVM's commitment to
equality and enlightenment.
The primary purpose of The University of Vermont is to create and share knowledge.
UVM prepares its students to live productive, responsible, and creative lives through a
high quality, liberal education. As a research university, UVM endorses the intrinsic value
of the creation of new knowledge and promotes the application of relevant knowledge to
benefit a multi-dimensional and global society.
